Explanation​​ 

  •  

B

80% of 3360 are post graduate

  • Total post graduate employees = 80/100 * 3360 = 2688

  • Female post graduate employees = 2688-1488 = 1200

Total number of female employees = 5/14 * 3360 = 1200

Thus, required % = 1200/1200 * 100 = 100%

  •  

C

number of male employees in P = 5/12 * 2568 = 1070

Male employees in R = 10/21 * 2310 = 1100

Male employees in S = 3/5 *3575 = 2145

Male employees in U = 20/41 *2788 = 1360

Hence, Company S has maximum number of employees among the given options.

  •  

D

[(11/16) * 2880 + (9/14) * 3360]:[(11/21) * 2310 + (2/5)* 3575]

  • [1980 + 2160]:[1210 + 1430]

  • 4140:2640

69:44

  •  

C

Average number of post graduate employees in companies P, Q and S = (1926 + 1872 + 2145)/3 = 5943/3 = 1981

Average number of post graduate employees in companies U, V and W = (2091+2046+2688)/3 = 6875/3 = 2275

Sum = 2275 + 1981 = 4256.

  •  

D

P – 2568/16 = 160.5

Q - 2880/18 = 160

R – 2310/14 = 165

S – 3575/22 = 162.5

T – 2054/13 = 158

U – 2788/17 = 164

V – 3720/24 = 155

W – 3360/21 = 160

Highest – R

2nd​​ Highest – U.

  •  

B

First of all, since rate of interest under Plan E is simple interest, and hence no need to calculate first year interest rate.

Interest under Plan B for 1st​​ year = 7.5% of Rs. 12000 = 900

Interest for 2nd​​ year = 6.25% of 12000 + 6.25% of 900 (since compound interest)

= 750 + 56.25 = 806.25

Interest for 2nd​​ year under Plan E = 5.8% of 12000 = 696

Thus, Difference between 2nd​​ year’s interests = 806.25 – 696 = Rs. 110.25.

  •  

C

for first 3 years, S.I was applicable under plan C and C.I. for next 2 years under plan D.

Amount after 3 years = 20480 + (8.75% + 5.25% + 4.75%) * 20480 = 24320

24320 + 7.5% of 24320 = 26144

Now, after 5th​​ year, total amount paid = 27778

Thus, 26144 + x/100 *26144 = 27778

x = 6.25%

  •  

D

let the amounts be 16x and 13x respectively.

Thus, ratio of rate of interests

  • 16x * [(1+7.5%)(1+6.25%)-1] : 13x * (8.75% + 5.25%)

  • 16x * [(43/40 * 17/16) -1] : 13x* 14/100

  • 16x * 91/640 : 13x * 14/100

5:4

  •  

C

Rate of Interest:

Under new plan C = 3* 6.66% = 20%

Under old plan C = 8.75% + 5.25% + 4.755% + - 18.75%

Thus, percent increase = (20 – 18.75)/18.75 * 100 = 6.66%

  •  

A

Let the amount borrowed under plan A be x.

Total rate of interest for plan A = 8.66 + 6.66 + 3.66 = 19%

For plan E = 7.6 + 5.8 + 4.6 = 18%

Total Interest = 19% of x + 18% of (30000-x)

5540 = 18% of 30000 + 1% of x

x = Rs. 14000.

Option (d) is correct as the author clearly is making the case for ‘creativity and

flexibility’ in government regulations in the last paragraph. Option (d) covers

both the new plants and those older plants who can afford to retrofit a scrubber.

some older plants. Option (b) is also too rigid and is impractical as well. Option

puts the cost of installing scrubbers even in new plants on the government.
